Audio latency with FX apps
I guess this applies to any latency but I’m more and more frustrated with audio playback being behind what I’ve actually played live.
Some of you might already know that I rely on Loopy for my audio looping needs and I have to commend Michael for keeping the latency bugs in check. The problem arises, I notice, when an effect app is plugged in. In this particular case my attention falls on ToneStack and VoiceRackFX.
I think my staccato, percussive style of playing doesn’t help but as things stand I’m considering switching to outboard fx solution, however it pains me not to take advantage of the power of some iPad apps. As well as practicality of not having extra wires, power adapters and the likes.
At present, the only thing that’s stopping me from going hardware only is Samplr which sadly isn’t available in hardware and Loopy with its ‘on the fly’ loop length feature.
